A moment in time

Tonight, one of those moments happened that I want to remember forever. One of the moments that made all of the rough times, the attitude and the challenges of having a 3 year old melt away, if just for a little while. M, Q and I were sitting on the couch watching Return of the Jedi. We have been watching all of the Star Wars movies in order with Q over the past few weeks and he loves them. … [Read more...]

The fun of imagination

Q's imagination is growing by leaps and bounds right now and it both amazes and amuses me. The other morning, I was downstairs and I hear him chatting through the monitor. When I got upstairs to the bedroom to get him up, he asked me to wait a few minutes, because he was talking on the phone.

 I went out for coffee this week with a girlfriend that I hadn't seen in months.  It was so great, getting to sit with her and chat, enjoy a slice of cheesecake (yum!), and a hot drink, all without any little people yelling "Mummy!" or "I need to tell you something".  For both of us.  Her child is the same age as mine, and we actually met when we both put our 3 month olds into … [Read more...]
